About Us

We’re about people, not a company or product. This was the driving force behind the creation of Shrader Wealth Advisors in 2012. We set out to build the firm around core principles, values, and long-term client relationships. The rest is history. Our central office is located in Roanoke, VA but we are a regional firm, spending a great deal of our time servicing clients in the Southwest Virginia and Southern West Virginia areas, as well as other states across the country. We are structured as a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm, which means we act in a fiduciary capacity with every relationship, ensuring advice is always in each client’s best interest. We like to think our firm combines a unique blend of youth and experience…so we’ll be here awhile! We love our clients, we love our work, and we love the regional area in which we live and serve. We hope to see you soon!

Our team is here for you.

Shrader Wealth Advisors, based in Roanoke, VA, helps individuals with wealth management.

Ben Shrader

Financial Advisor, Owner & President

 

Ben founded Shrader Wealth Advisors in 2012. He loves people, numbers, and detail…so he has definitely found his calling.

Ben grew up in the mountains of Tazewell, VA, went to high school in Princeton, WV, and graduated from Roanoke College in Salem, VA with a degree in Business Administration, along with concentrations in Finance and Accounting. Ben began work in the financial industry right out of college in 2008 (great year to start, right?) at a large financial services firm. He worked several years before transitioning for a brief stint at a different firm. After seeing how the financial service industry operated at large firms, he had had enough. He knew there was a better way to provide financial advice, and he wanted to offer clear and transparent services that followed an understandable process focused around the client being successful. This ultimately led to the creation of Shrader Wealth Advisors. Ben has steadily grown the firm, hasn’t looked back, and is passionate about the principles the firm was founded upon.

Ben’s faith is the most important thing in his life. He loves spending time with his wife Beth and their children. Ben is really into sports, and formerly played basketball for Roanoke College. In his free time (what’s that?), he can be found on the golf course with clients and friends, taking practice swings in the living room, or shooting basketball in the back yard. Ben also serves on the board for one of his favorite local ministries, Camp Braveheart.

Erin Muterspaugh

Financial Advisor, Client Service & Operations

 

Erin joined Shrader Wealth Advisors in 2018. She has been a huge asset to the firm with her business background, meticulous personality, and bright friendly spirit.

Erin moved all over the US growing up, living in several states including Pennsylvania, Utah, Georgia, and Illinois (no, her parents were not in the military). She went to high school outside of Chicago, graduated from Roanoke College in Salem, VA, and holds a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. Before joining the firm, she had a 10 year career in Marketing & Advertising, where she worked with local and regional businesses on their television and video marketing campaigns. Erin decided to make a career switch. She loves the atmosphere at Shrader Wealth Advisors and having additional time to be a mom and raise her two young children. Erin is a fully licensed advisor, and her current roll with the firm is focused around client service, operations, with some occasional marketing.

Erin enjoys spending time with her husband Richard and their daughter and son. She has an athletic background and formerly played softball for Roanoke College. Erin likes to stay active, and when given the opportunity, loves to travel. She has made the Roanoke area home and likes to stay involved in various community organizations and activities.
